Impressions from E3: Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir
21 July 2008
Excerpt: Ok Neverwinter Nights 2 fans, you've got your second expansion headed your way this fall and you may all be wondering what you can expect from Storm of Zehir . While you can't expect it to rock the core of Neverwinter Nights , there are a couple additions that will surely keep players invested as never before in the Dungeons & Dragons universe.
Excerpt: Millions of players worldwide have been waiting about five years since Bioware and Atari first announced Neverwinter Nights , and that wait is finally over. Neverwinter Nights and its modular goodness have been set loose upon the masses and there was much rejoicing. What’s this? What’s Neverwinter Nights you ask? Well, whether you’re a fan of pen and paper table top games or you simply enjoy playing RPGs, read on to find out if NWN is the right game for you.
Excerpt: Needless to say that Neverwinter Nights (NWN) is a new Dungeons & Dragons RPG from Bioware, the makers of Baldur's Gate. For those who didn't play this game yet, NWN looks and feels similar to Diablo and Dungeon Siege at first, but it quickly becomes apparent that it's no top-down hack-n-slash game how some people can think.
Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: Neverwinter Nights takes the Forgotten Realms world into the realm of 3D, and all for the better. Excellent particle effects and lighting provide for not only spectacular looking spells, but detailed and diverse worlds and also their inhabitants. Both indoor and outdoor scenes are densely populated with buildings and people, all of which look the part.
Excerpt: Neverwinter Nights or How I Spent My Summer Vacation Back in the early '80s before the Commodore 64 was even available, I used to spend a week at a time cooped up in a dungeon known as an "Alert Facility". It was there that I was introduced to a game called Dungeons and Dragons. I've played the game on and off for years as both a player and as a masochist a.k.a. "DM" or Dungeon Master.
Excerpt: It all begins with you. Well, the construction of you, anyway. One of the best parts for me in D&D and similarly styled games is the character creation. You get to sit down and make an alternate persona of whatever you feel like; you are presented with the pure potential of what could be and what might happen with anything and everything out there.
